Wedding Lawn Games Ideas and Tips
While the commitment newlyweds make to one another is serious business, weddings should still be fun. One easy way to make outdoor weddings more fun is to provide your guests with a wide array of lawn games. Wedding lawn games will allow your guests to engage one another in some friendly competition in between the rest of the day’s events.
Fun Wedding Lawn Games to Make Your Day Enjoyable
Everyone loves a trivia game, and it’s much more fun when the topic is centered on the bride and groom! At every guest’s seat, leave a cute sheet with some trivia questions about the bride and groom. They can be multiple choice, fill in the blanks, or true/false questions. Then, have the guests fill out their answers and have the emcee read off the correct responses. Whichever guests get the most correct answers will take home the centerpiece or a special gift.
A classic block-stacking game like Jenga is always a delight for groups at parties, and all you need is a table and some wooden blocks. While it might seem like an indoor game, it translates well to the outdoors, especially if you opt for a jumbo version. Consider spicing up this wedding lawn game by writing truth or dare consequences on each block.
This wedding lawn game staple will attract the attention of kids and adults alike. Make it extra special on your wedding day by making it personalized and life-sized! Imagine it being four feet tall and made from cedar or maple, customized by having the groom and bride’s names in the holes. The photo ops with this item are fun, so take the chance to have it in your reception!
Celebrations tend to kick it up a notch when alcohol gets thrown into the mix, especially when drinking becomes part of a game. Make your wedding even more enjoyable with a good old-fashioned game of beer pong. All you need is a few ping pong balls, cups, and beer! Of course, you’ll want to encourage your guests to drink responsibly.
Cornhole is one of the most popular outdoor wedding games. Players enjoy testing their hand-and-eye coordination while participating in this fun throwing game. You can take it to the next level with a personalized board and beanbag, adding LED lights to the boards or giving prizes to the best cornhole players!
If you provide a photo booth, people will come. Grabbing a few snapshots in a Photobooth is fun to do and it also gives guest a memento they can put up on the fridge. Don’t pass on the chance to set up a photo booth at your wedding reception. Design the photo strip to line up with your wedding theme (if you have a logo, perhaps), or just set up a booth and let the guests have fun with it. Selfies, portraits, and group photos will become even more fun when you offer a variety of frames, props, and costumes!
Wheel of Fun
Whether they are strangers or friends, your wedding guests will want to interact with each other when you provide your own version of the Wheel of Fortune, only this time making it a wheel of activities. Spice things up by having options such as “kiss your date,” or “dance to your favorite song.” These selections will allow the guests to let loose and enjoy the day.
